My name is Nathaly, I'm from Brazil, and I'm really passionate about language learning. Portuguese is my native language, but I also speak fluent English and I can communicate well in Spanish. In 2017, I started making Portuguese video lessons for my American friends that visited Brazil for some weeks and since then I've been assisting them with their Portuguese learning process. In the same year, while enrolled in the Academic English Program at the University of Texas at Austin, I was part of the Portuguese Language Partnership Program through which American college students of Portuguese and Brazilians could practice conversational Portuguese.
I majored in English Language and its Literature at the Universidade Federal de Pernambuco and I'm currently working as an English teacher, besides teaching Portuguese here on Verbling. I've been teaching English for about 5 years, to all age groups, and I've received positive feedback from my students and coordinators for my creativity and special attention to the minimum details in each lesson. I also love phonetics and phonology and have done research into the field of language acquisition. In my lessons, a special attention is given to pronunciation and communicative real-life situations. I also adapt my lesson plans to different learning styles, as well as focusing on the difficulties Portuguese learners may encounter due to interference of their native language
I'm looking forward to teaching you!
